Growing up, Easter was all about jelly beans, dyeing eggs, going on scavenger hunts, and, of course, getting a big Easter basket full of goodies. But just because you're an adult now doesn't mean you can't still partake in the fun of Easter in a completely different way.
In 2023, 81% of adults celebrated Easter, despite declining religious beliefs. Adult Easter baskets also make fun gift ideas for friends, family members, and significant others.
If you want to put a spring in your adult Easter basket this year, take a look at some great adult basket ideas below to help inspire you.
Being a grown-up means your adult Easter basket can have a different kind of hop to it. Specifically, the hops you'll find in a beer gift basket. Beer gift baskets are a terrific gift idea for the beer lover on your Easter list.
You'll find an assortment of top-rated craft beers and microbrews for the gift recipient to sample from. These beers rate between 95 (Outstanding) to 100 (World Class) based on tens of thousands of ratings from fellow beer enthusiasts from coast to coast.
Beer selections include:
If you're looking for craft beer gifts for Easter or any other holiday, you can't go wrong with beer gift baskets.
If you or your gift recipient isn't a beer drinker, you can still find something to lift your spirits. For example, a Whiskey Sampler Gift Set is a fantastic way to offer the recipient of an adult Easter basket a selection of top-branded whiskies to suit any whiskey enthusiast's tastes.
You can choose from 6, 12, or 24 whiskey sets from brands like:
These whiskies come in 50 mL bottles, giving you just the right amount to sample and share. You don't have to limit yourself to just your Easter celebration, they also make wonderful holiday gifts as well. They are attractively packaged and suitable for gift-giving occasions all year long.
If you're not sure what type of alcohol to put into an adult Easter basket or you're looking for more variety, a liquor sampler kit is the answer. You'll have a veritable mini-bar of booze options to choose from.
A Gallup poll from 2022 showed that 30% of poll respondents favored liquor as their alcoholic beverage of choice. It came in third behind beer and wine.
You can get 6 or 12 different liquors in 50 mL bottles, like whisky, rum, vodka, tequila, gin, and more. You'll also be able to get top-name brands such as:
A Liquor Sampler in your adult Easter basket is sure to please even the pickiest palate.
A good adult Easter basket doesn't have to be focused solely on food and drinks either. If you have a person on your Easter gift list who is into all things tech, you can create a basket around this theme as well.
If your recipient is a big user of the Apple Watch, you can find decorative or custom band designs to help them jazz up their style. Wireless earbuds are always a good idea for techies who want to stay connected to their music and podcasts at home or on the go.
Toss in a few accessories, too, like a wireless charger, a power bank, a phone case, and a few different styles of Popsockets.
A 2022 survey conducted by Shopkick found that chocolate is the top favorite candy category with 90% of consumers. Just because you've grown up doesn't mean you have to give up chocolate altogether. Your preference for candy may have evolved as well.
As an adult, you likely have a taste for the finer things in life. That's why an adult Easter basket featuring some of the fancier chocolate candy brands is the perfect gift for "somebunny" special on your list.
Focus on high-end brands like See's, Lindt, and Godiva. You'll find decadent bunnies, eggs, chicks, and more. Buy a decorative basket and put your own handpicked selection of gourmet chocolates into it or buy a pre-made gift set. Either way, you'll have an Easter basket that can rival the Easter Bunny himself.
On the other hand, you or a gift recipient may consider yourselves to be more along the lines of junk food connoisseurs. They love everything that's salty, sugary, and so bad for you it's good.
If that's the case, then you'll want to build the ultimate adult Easter basket that's chock full of junk foodie goodness. Add items like flavored popcorn, pretzels, assorted chips, and cheese puffs. You'll also want to grab items like packaged cookies, brownies, and pastries.
Throw in some theater box candy, candy bars, lollipops, and gummy candies for good measure. If you want to elevate your adult Easter basket to total junk food nirvana, you can even add sodas or energy drinks.
The Man Cave Easter Basket is a fun spin on an adult Easter basket for the special man in your life like your husband, brother, or father. Get an inventive reusable container to use as your Easter basket, such as a cooler, a decorative wooden crate, or a storage bin. Start by putting in a selection of their favorite craft beers, liquors, or a bottle of whiskey.
Add in a selection of their favorite snacks, like pork rinds, beef jerky, nuts, and popcorn. You can also put in some magazines relating to their specific interests, whether it's sports cars, monster trucks, hunting, or fishing.
If you know someone who needs a little TLC this Easter, then a self-care adult Easter basket is the way to go. Pick out some scented candles with light fragrances to provide some aromatherapy. Look for fun and fizzy bath bomb assortments or shower steamers to help make bath time more relaxing.
Add a pair of fuzzy slippers and some soft terrycloth headbands. You can also include items like soothing hand lotions, exfoliating face scrubs, and under-eye patches to reduce puffiness.
A manicure set makes the perfect addition to your adult Easter basket. It allows them to easily maintain the look of their nails over time. You can even include a set of festive nail polishes to go along with it.
From hockey to basketball, baseball, football, NASCAR, and even soccer, there's something for everyone in the wide world of sports. For a recipient who is a fan of multiple sporting events, you can go with an assortment of sports-related items encompassing their interests.
If the recipient of your adult Easter basket has a favorite team, you can dive even deeper into gift items of all types and sizes. There is a variety of team-branded merchandise featuring logos on everything from jerseys, t-shirts, and apparel to decorative signs, flags, banners, and more.
Have fun and get creative. You can even select an Easter basket container and accessories that fit with the team colors to expand on the theme.
Everyone loves getting caught up in the thrill of a good movie. That's why movie subscription gift cards are ideal.
If they're a fan of a particular movie series like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games, you can find a treasure trove of different movie memorabilia items to put into their Easter basket. You can even find special commemorative collector's edition boxed sets of the movie series on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Include a selection of movie theater favorite candies like Red Vines, Reese's Pieces, Milk Duds, and Junior Mints. And whatever you do, don't forget the popcorn.
As adults living in this stressful world, we may long for a time when things were simpler and we took such joy from receiving a simple Easter basket. If turning back time sounds like a cool idea, then maybe injecting a little bit of nostalgia into an adult Easter basket isn't so bad after all.
Go classic with a traditional wicker basket or a plastic Easter pail. Fill it with old-school Easter grass or shredded colored newspaper. Then load it up with all of those blast-from-the-past Easter treats, like hollow chocolate Easter bunnies, creme-filled eggs, and jelly beans.
Top it all off with some dyed eggs and a big bow and wrap it in cellophane to take a trip down memory lane and feel like a kid again.
It's never too early to start planning for Easter. You want to ensure that everyone on your list gets the best Easter gift possible. Creating the perfect adult Easter basket can be easy and fun with these adult basket ideas.
